Two in One


Tonight I worked on combining the Sketch challenge for this week and the TRUE colour challenge....it seems I jumped the gun and didn't wait for the Official Colour Challenge. I've added a thumbnail of the sketch and the colours are Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red and Soft Sky.

The centre of my large flower is coloured in soft sky, but covered with Dazzling Diamonds so the colour didn't show up very well in the photo. I guess I could include the Embossed Watercolour from the Technique Challenge this week....but I used the ink pads and blender pens on regular cardstock, so I didn't really end up with a true watercolour effect this time. The black is embossed though. I kind of like that effect. Godelieve in Belgium at Stamping Mathilda uses embossing a lot. I was easily able to wipe away glue and diamonds, and could colour over the black without worrying about dulling it.

I'm all set to clean and stamp this weekend....although not necessarily in that order. I have to go to school to get a couple of things organized...school is nuts right now, but otherwise I'm set to stamp. I'd like to get into my yard too and would usually go gung ho until I finished but I'm not sure if my knees will let me do that this year. We'll have to see.

Reminder to the ladies in our area that our Birthday Card Camp is next weekend.....let us know which sitting you will be attending. I will be posting the cards on this blog this weekend.

See ya through the weekend....Thanks for stopping by - Joan
